Uranus was transiting jyeshtha nakshatra leading to total chaos and anarchy. 1986 was far the worst with Uranus finally entering the gandaant of jyeshtha-4. 1987 brought relief and by time Uranus reached poorvashada, socialism was almost gone and capitalism was taking baby steps in India. Rest as they say is history.
Some things are reminders of the past that was a learning experience. A past that was bad, a past that everyone wants to forget. These reminders are the ankush that we have to restrain our self when we are about to do some thing extravagant.
Well the movie will always be the stark reminder of a time of turmoil and change. Transition from poverty to wealth wont affect it because it has frozen time in itself. A time that needed an Ankush. Ankush of love and affection, the thought that "violence begets violence". Even in today's world the movie holds relevance. All violence has ever done is to create more of it. The prayer in the movie says this very nicely. I wanted to embed the last prayer but dint get that version. This is the happy version when everyone is alive and optimistic at last everyone dies and the prayer then is very pessimist almost like a mourn song.
Well watch this video and experience the turmoil that was the year 1986.
